Cruisin' on my Bluebird
Got the Merc. in the shop and up on the stand.

Changing the wheels and tires out for better ones. Going to do something with this tank. Was going to do a stars and bars Dukes of Hazard theme on the tank, but there's this bike in the Rat rod section that has this great flame job on the tank, that I really like.

I think I might try and copy it. Maybe add a little color. This was the last bike I rode before the colder weather hit.

A good project for the holiday season.

I sold this bike two years ago. The same type. This is what a stock 49-50' should look like. These Murrays are sharp looking bikes. I bought the above bike from old Ed Boros [RIP] about 15 years ago.

For the life of me, I don't know how these other photos got in here. If anyone is wondering??? These are other bikes I've "modified" for fun. How about the "clock brace clockometer" on the old Schwinn ? That ratty looking Shelby is on the same stand in the shop with the Murray today. It's the black one in the back. The blue monark is a 40 5bar with double springers and the last one is a Manton and Smith.

I've painted many tanks, always with nice results. My first flame job, not so hot. In the past I've always cut stencils. Takes a lot longer to make stencils than it does painting. This time I just free handed it with a brush and Rustolium. I always use One Shot brand for the brush work, but being that I only needed maybe a half oz. of yellow paint, that I will never use again, I hated to spend the money on a pint of One Shot. It's about 8 times the cost of Rustolium. Should have made stencils. Both sides are different, but again, maybe I'm just used to the human trait that one side of something always has to perfectly match the other. After all, when it comes to fire, no two flames are alike. Maybe I'll decide which side of the tank looks best, and make a stencil of it, then re-paint the other tank half to match. Which side do you guys think is best? [I know. . . neither] Left or right [chainring]? Or, should I just leave it? A CABE ratrod decision. . .

I say leave it. Like you say, flames aren't identical anyway and you're never going to see both sides at once anyway, except maybe looking down. Looks pretty darn good to me especially for a first attempt.
